Interested in volunteering?
 
Can you help Chippenham Live At Home Scheme?

Can you spare as little as one hour per week to offer friendship and support to older people in Chippenham

Our volunteers are key to the success of our project and are truly valued by our members as well as the staff. Volunteers are given a full induction programme and training to suit their role. We would love to hear from you if you would like to join our team.  Our volunteer commitments starts at just an hour a month for volunteer drivers to 2 hours a week for our befrienders.

Befriending

We are looking for befriending volunteers who can pop in on an older person once a week for a
chat, a cup of tea or perhaps a little help with reading, shopping, or playing games.

We match members and volunteers to ensure that there are interests in common to
encourage a genuine relationship to grow.
 

Telephone Link

Could you provide a regular phone call to one or more of our members? This service can
provide a vital lifeline to members who may not have regular visitors or may have difficulty getting out to social events.

 

Driving

 

We really want to improve the social lives of our members but transport is a real problem for many older people who no longer drive.Woudl you be able to give a lift to a member so that they can come along to an event such as the monthly lunch club? Our drivers must have a full clean driving license and expenses can be reimbursed.
